I posted a couple questions on your stuffed tenderloin here:

I noticed the post does not bump to the top of the board even with a new update so I thought it might get lost.

    I thought the whole post came back, I guess I don't understand sorry.

    i think he is travelling. you want the pork to hit around 140 but with all the moist ingrediants he has in there it wont be bad if you over cook it a little, internal temps are hard to monitor with these. notice the meat is all exterior the way he rolled it up, it will cook more evenly that way. dome shut is how i would cook it

    jimi: We do ours about 375* dome, direct, lid closed, turning frequently for even browning. As far as the internal temp, as long as any meat component to the stuffing is pre-cooked, you can pull based on the temp of the tenderloin. (In other words, if you're going to put hamburger or sausage inside, precook it first.) Per Steves recipe, he used cured meats, so they are already cooked. Pork is absolutly safe at 137* internal temp. I would pull at 137* (or no higher than 140*). Allow a minimum 5 minute rest prior to cutting. (10 minutes would be better)

    Hi all,

    Much obliged. Sounds like the stuffed one could actually be done before my regular tenderloin since the pork is pretty much all on the outside and pounded out thin. I followed his recipe using the cured meats in the middle.

    Can't wait!

    I just did my first stuffed tenderloin this afternoon, pulled them at 140 but a quick check with my Thermapen showed 150 on the narrower ends :blink: but they were juicy nonetheless. :)

    Phil: I use the same view. It's my understanding they will only pop to the front if the thread is 3 days old or less. The post jimi tried to post to was posted in April. So regardless of what view he was using, the thread will remain buried. So Voila, not in this case! :)

    Sorry, I haven't been been on for a few days. I usually lay the stuffed loin diagonal to the grid and roll it a bit every little while. If there is nothing raw in the stuffing I cook til the pork is about 145*. If there is a lot of cheese I'll get the stuffing to about 130* or thereabouts.
